Rickie Lee's always been my girl. I think I was 12 or so when I got a copy of her first album and I've been head over heels ever since. She played in Austin on Saturday night but there was no way I could make it in my current state. I'm sad, really, because I'm not sure how many more tours she'll do, or if I'll ever get a chance to see her live again.
NPR did a piece on her this morning and they've got a nice little feature on their website. Great links to photos and the Guardian article about her newest album.
